June Gloom Walk

Yesterday morning I decided to take a little detour from my typical Wii Fit U workouts. A friend of mine, Mark, visited me he other day to help give me some exercise tips. I thought I’d share some interesting pictures of my little trek: IMG_1008I think that was my favorite shot. The lake is man-made and quite big. There a lot of people walking and running around the lake. I passed runners while I was walking. I passed a woman running around the lake three times. I thought that was impressive, at least compared to my ability. No, I didn’t giver her the thumbs up or say anything. There are several stations around the lake that one can use to exercise. I had decided to use one in particular Normally I workout using Wii Fit U. I’ve talked about it before. The nice thing about having it is that I don’t have to go far to exercise. I also like the privacy. The only downside is that there is a limit to what you can do with your upper body. Sure there is the push up and side planks and a few others, but not enough. IMG_1010 This particular area has plenty of bars to do all sorts of things. I tried doing chin-ups and dips, but didn’t do well. I was able to do some pull-ups, hanging under a bar and pulling upwards. I liked those!

I walked to the lake instead of driving, so I could get a good warm up. I feel like the distance was more than enough and I may drive to the lake and some warm-ups at the station. There is a step workout area that would be a good place to warm up too. I just don’t like how long it takes to get there and I don’t really need a 20min warmup (which is about how long it takes to get to the right station from my house). IMG_1012

Probably the most fun part of the day was seeing the ducks and geese!

Looks to me like they share a common ancestor ;). ¬†On the way back, I ran into something I hadn’t noticed before:

IMG_1014 Yikes, looks like a repair is in order! I wonder if someone unscrewed the sign from the post. I saw another button with two missing screws from the sign, so I thought maybe someone was doing it.

Overall, the total workout was about an hour-long. That was mostly from walking. I’m thinking of doing two half hour Wii Fit U workouts to see how it compares in terms of effort.
